This was an idea which stemmed from members asking other members for suggestions on great BC rides, be it local, or of distance.
I thought the Destination Highways book was the bible for this type of stuff, but a few members suggested that a single source, perhaps search-able, and printable, might be nice too.
I though it might be a good idea to try and document those rides on a single master map, which members can all contribute to.
Over time, this will hopefully get more & more populated, and start to take shape as a nice tool for us all.
The idea would be to provide a detailed Google Map "ride" link in your post, and we can add it to the master map. Ideally, you could also provide some pertinent detail about the ride which may help others.
The "ride" will be posted on the map, with your user name, as well as the posted description/details.
I was thinking about categorizing these rides in some basic form as well, based on distance and difficulty, but this may prove difficult, with no standard to adhere to.
If anyone has suggestions, bring it on.
Ideally, it would be nice to have 2-4 people helping out on this idea, who would be responsible for updating the master, as well as working with members.
So far, myself (CHIA) and maggotbreath have stepped up, another 2 would be nice.
* Hopefully the mods will provide a sticky for this thread, and it can be ready to rock come spring 09!
